Not only am I proud of the baby quilt I completed but I’m doubly proud of my husband and our fourteen year old granddaughter. She has become PaPa’s hunting companion and this weekend was the first weekend of Spring Gobbler Season in our neck of the woods. Victoria decided she wanted to sleep in on Saturday and PaPa went hunting without her. He had wonderful luck bringing in a 19 pound gobbler with a 7″ beard and we’re going to have a mighty fine feast with it. We called our daughter and Victoria shortly after he arrived home with the prize and within twenty minutes they arrived at our doorstep to see if Victoria would have the same luck. They left the house at around 10:30 and were back by 11:10 with a turkey she could hardly carry from her stand. PaPa said she was pretty excited from the time the turkeys crossed their path until she landed the big one. Apparently she was doing some pretty heavy breathing. She filled her last permit tag for the season and fared really well during the fall deer season too! PaPa is pretty proud of his new hunting companion!!
Country Girl Through & Through
I'm a country girl from the western part of Virginia in a small community of New Castle/Craig County. I've lived in Craig all my life-eighteen years with my parents and siblings and forty + years with my wonderful husband.
We have two children, a boy and a girl, and two grandchildren, all of which we love very much. We live on a 500 acre+ farm that has been in my husbands family for over 200 years. We are raising beef cattle, chickens, rabbits and a couple dogs.. We grow pretty much all we eat or harvest from the farm and I can't imagine living anywhere else.
I love to create, craft, quilt, read, write, decorate, crochet, candlewick, bake, bow hunt, cook, garden, farm animals and walking/hunting in the woods. I love sharing our home with family and friends.
I hope you enjoy the posts that I enter on my blog and hopefully will be helpful and/or fun to all that read it.
